Jane Millar with Petoskey Middle School Students
Career Day is an initiative of the Rotary Club of Petoskey in collaboration with Petoskey Middle School. At this event, approximately 50 different careers are represented by local business people. The eighth grade students sign up for four, half-hour sessions with the various representatives. The career choices range from veterinarian to EMS employee to accountant to yoga instructor to fire fighter to chef and the list goes on.
The 2020 Career Day was to be held at the Petoskey Middle School the morning of Wednesday, March 11. Unfortunately, this special event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as was the 2021 Career Day.
If there had not been the cancellations, Executive Director Jane Millar would have presented sessions relating to mediation as she has done in the past. In order to engage the students, she has them role play a scripted mediation. Through this process, the students learn how mediation works and how powerful mediation can be.
